Woman Leaves Salon In Tears Over Botched Brow Treatment

Woman Leaves Salon In Tears Over Botched Brow Treatment

A pregnant woman says she was reduced to tears by the results of a brow wax and tint which were so bad 'a four-year-old could have drawn them better blindfolded'.

Megan Ferguson, 26, from Sutton, Surrey, headed to the salon to have her brows preened ahead of a family party last Friday (12th April).

Instead, she asked for £15 wax and tint but was completely horrified by the results, which she says left her brows looking like they were drawn on with marker pen.

Megan says the eyebrows extended way over the natural outline, despite having asked the two beauticians to follow her brow and tattoo line.

Furious Megan left the shop after paying for the treatment and ran to the closest Superdrug, where she paid another beautician a further £5 to fix them as much as she could, meaning she spent £20 on getting her brows done in total.

"I went into the eyebrow shop for a wax and a tint, I asked them to follow my brow and tattoo line," Megan explained. "I'm pregnant so couldn't go back and get them tattooed. One woman did the wax, then I waited and a second women did the tint."

The mum-to-be continued: "At the end I couldn't believe how bad they were, I was in shock.

"She could tell by my face - I said 'what have you done?'

"They didn't say anything so I walked out because I was either going to cry or explode.

"I didn't know what else to do so I paid and ran out and FaceTimed a friend to show her.

"She googled how to remove the tint so I ran into a nearby Superdrug to get them fixed by the brow lady in there, I didn't want anyone to see me.

"She was just as shocked and couldn't believe any professional could leave me looking like that.

"She had some stain remover and she tried her best to remove as much as she could."

Megan says she had another bad experience in the same salon a few years ago, claiming a trainee dropped wax into her eye, which resulted in having to take off half of her false lashes.

Even after getting her brows fixed at Superdrug, Megan says she had to keep scrubbing them until they looked normal again.

She added: "I'm 21 weeks pregnant with my first miracle baby, so just wanted to feel good and it went very wrong.

"I won't be going back, it looked like a four year old had done them - to be fair I know a few kids who could do it better blind folded.
